That did the trick, thanks for the post, much appreciated!

I've read a decent chunk of this thread, but do not have time to read it all. So question:
Is there a way to shut down xbmc using MCE Keyboard, MCE SE Keyboard or MCE Remote?
On a somewhat related topic, does there exist a document/wiki entry/post that speaks to all the keyboard shortcuts available for xbmc? I haven't had luck locating one.

Yes and Yes.

^ Okay. Care to share the details?

To shutdown XBMC with remote, map 'END' to a button. I think XBMC has to be at menu screen so maybe multiple action 'ESC' then 'END'
http://wiki.xbmc.org/index.php?title=Category:Navigation There's Global Keybaord, Music Keyboard, etc.
All this info in this forum post elsewhere.

Trying to follow this guide with my new HTPC (XBMC) and Harmony One. I added the MCE Keyboard but when I add the MCE Remote the Harmony SW wants me to learn the commands from the original remote. Do I need to do this step? If I click done without learning any, it goes on to ask me if I want to use a similar device "Microsoft MCE 2006" - I can only select Next or Previous.
Lastly (for now), do I actually need to map out every single key in the custom section? I thought things like Play and Pause would work automatically.

I would recommend just using the MCE Keyboard. My XBMC setup works just fine by assigning the keyboard commands to the remote buttons.

Hi @ all,
maybe somebody can halp me out with one or two little hints...
I´m running Dharma on Windows 7 32-Bit. I found a MCE Remote with
IR Reciever in the garage...
I plugged in and the in the devices&printer section it is recognized
as "MCE USB IR Receiver Spinel Plus"...The original remote works without a problem, but my harmony acting as a MCE Keyboard does nothing...not a single key press is recognized...
Is this du to the receiver? Spinel Plus...never heard of it...google gives no useful results...
